Chief Meterologist Adam Clark Answers Rayman’s Question “What Exactly Is The Definition Of The Term “Dew point”?

NNC

When I was a youngster, moisture in the air was described as “humidity”. I quickly realized the thicker the air felt, the higher the humidity must be. I pretty much forgot about it for years until one day I heard the words dew point. I never really got the exact definition of  dew point,  so I asked Chief Meteorologist Adam Clark of the Northland’s News Center to put it in layman’s terms for me. Here is his response in both text and audio. Thanks Adam!

“Dew point is the temperature at which the atmosphere becomes 100% saturated.  If you cool the temperature down to the dew point temperature you will achieve 100% humidity.  The dew point will never exceed the temperature.

It’s a better way of showing how much moisture is in the air.”
